College students looking for a business competition to demonstrate their aptitude for strategy and problem-solving have been urged to enter for the 2019 Global CE Challenge.

The competition is organised by Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) and gives participants to showcase their ingenuity and critical thinking skills beyond the college campus on a global scale.

P&G said in a statement that it wants students to demonstrate their business skills in several real-world scenarios, showcasing the type of work they could do for P&G brands.

If you want exposure to the kind of work you’d do at P&G while showcasing your skills, this is your chance.”
